Pawn Stars is an American reality television show that features a pawn shop in Las Vegas. It’s an entertaining show even though the events are staged for TV. If you’ve watched show, it’s worth a visit to Gold & Silver Pawn Shop while you’re in Las Vegas.

We found the shop in a scruffy part of town – it looked just like the TV Show. There was a parking lot with attendants. Surprisingly there wasn’t a charge for parking – usually these things become monetised pretty quickly.

There wasn’t a line to get into the shop, nor an admission charge – it just felt like a regular store, albeit with some really interesting items of memorabilia.

None of the main characters from the show (Rick, Corey & Chumlee) were behind the counters, but we didn’t expect that. Apparently you can pay for a VIP tour, with a meet and greet, that also includes visits to other History channel reality shows. The tour is $99 which doesn’t seem too expensive.

There was a Rick standee – I’m the one on the left!

The shop was pretty interesting and it was good to see it just operating as a real shop, not just a TV set.

I imagine we were like the majority of visitors – we didn’t buy or pawn anything. If you have an interesting item to pawn and want to try and be on the show, email pawnstars@gspawn.com with photos and information about your items.

Our visit was part of our May/June 2019 USA Trip – click here for all the USA trip reviews.
